Well I did make some cards yesterday but didn’t get round to blogging them. I also sorted through a large box of cards which I have kept over the years. These are mainly handmade, cards from Graham or those that have special memories like Silver Wedding or when I left work. The box was overflowing and I couldn’t get the ones from Christmas and Graham’s Birthday in it.
So I decided it was time for a sort out. It was very interesting looking back at them. I have some gorgeous cards from my friend Lynsey who you may know on Facebook. We used to work together and would often discuss cardmaking. We spent many happy times at craft shows too. She gave up cardmaking and now makes fairies selling as Raindrop Crafts.
Which brings me onto my first ever card I made 15 years ago this May. I have always loved making things since I was a little girl and had a fancy to try cardmaking. We were in a garden centre with a craft section and Graham suggested I buy a cardmaking kit to see if I liked it. I bought that and some handmade papers and that was the start of it.
I had no idea what I was doing, didn’t want to follow the instructions in the cart but it was a starting point. This is the first card I made which was for our Anniversary. I kept it to show how far I have come since that first day. It may not be very good but it was made with love.

Well I ended up doing all kinds of things other than crafting yesterday. However I did get a lovely craft delivery with my latest DT pack from Craft Label, formerly Trimcraft. This time we were given an amount of money to spend on their new website which I much preferred. It was lovely choosing what to buy and I only spent 43p over my allocation. We were asked to choose some of their newest items which I did with the Butterfly Kisses range. They have some great bargains on their website like the card blanks and some of the older paper pads. I have used a lot of my grand plans pad so got another as there are some great designs for male cards.
Today I am definitely having some crafting time so hopefully will have something to share tomorrow.
